Ottawa is the capital city of Canada, and the fourth largest municipality in the country. You can rent an apartment in Ottawa and spend your time exploring the city’s numerous art galleries, museums, theatres, as well as the famous Parliament Buildings at Parliament Hill. Across the Rideau Canal is the commercial and financial hub of Ottawa called Centretown, and the city’s oldest area is called Lower Town. If you are a student, you should consider apartments for rent in Ottawa because the city offers world-class colleges and universities, including the University of Ottawa and Carleton University. Ontario’s second largest city is also located close to Gatineau and approximately 2.5 hours from Montreal so you can easily visit Quebec if you’re considering Ottawa apartment rentals. Winter activities in Ottawa are also enjoyable; you can play hockey, ski, skate down the famous Rideau Canal or participate in many exciting activities at Winterlude – one of North America’s largest winter festivals.
